This view of a ‘Coastal Scene’ is typical of Dommersen’s technique of applying a bright luminous pallet to their subjects. In this sunny view, beneath a clear blue sky, a beached fishing boat and figures can be seen in the left foreground. Beyond them, on a promontory along the coast, is a wooden house by the water’s edge with a moored fishing boat nearby. These motifs are clearly reflected in the still waters of the bay. This idealised view is probably derived from a location on the Dutch coast.
